 (San Francisco)·Dined on 1 September 2017

We have dined at Bentley on several other occasions. This time convinced us that we will have to think long and hard about returning in the future. Mostly issues about service: there seemed to be a large party in an adjacent room. Dishes were brought before we finished the prior course. They did, however, split the salad we ordered to share without having to request it--a nice touch.

Oysters were good, albeit not very cold when they arrived at the table. The quail and the cheesy potatoes were excellent.

This is a lovely restaurant with great ambience. The service is quite efficient, though not as professional as on our last visit. Dishes are described in a very interesting way on the menu & there is a twist on traditional dishes. Everything tastes delicious. One minor criticism would be that on ordering the wine, we were not told that we were being served the last bottle of their stock.

For me Bentley restaurant was ok. If you want to waste your money and make yourself feel like me.. on fine dinning restaurant and i will recommend this restaurant. I proper to go to glass brasserie rather than going to this restaurant, i think bentley is just name value. For example you buy paper "LV bag" for $100.. portion size:perfect, service:standard, if any of you guys staying radisson blu plaza, ignor all the recommendation from concierge, and walk out the building and find the restaurant that worth of money.

The service was excellent but the food really ruined the night. The wines were also nothing special but there were one or two good ones in there. Really not value for money considering the price. Would have rather had a quiet night in with food delivery if this was the case.

We had dinner here for my partners birthday and we loved it. The atmosphere was amazing, the food was amazing, the service was amazing. We valued the staff going the extra mile with little things like splitting the dishes across two plates as we said we would prefer to share, most restaurants when you say this just give you share plates so we valued this highly. I would definitely recommend this and we will be back.

I had high hope for this venue as it scored really well on reviews. We had marron for entree which was semi raw. I thought it was just mine but both of our entrees were undercooked/transucent. It was really disappointing. the nibbles in between the entree and main were really nice and the service was good. the main of pork loin was also undercooked and pink. it also was a little tough and chewy. this could all be a one off but I didn't have a great experience and wouldn't recommend it to friends

My only gripe was the rush to get us in and out as fast as possible. I understand that there is a time constraint but if you are only offering 5 or 8 course degustation then you must allow time, if not just do a la carte, three courses max.

The food at Bentley is creative and bold, often using native ingredients to present flavours that are a little outside of the box. They also have an extensive and impressive drinks list which includes non-alcoholic options.

We had a great evening. The food was fantastic and the service was just right, friendly and not too intrusive. The Sommelier was particularly helpful with the big wine list, thanks.

The dishes kept getting better, when we had the grouper as No 1 the duck arrived. We had the 8 course set menu so choice wasn't a problem.

We'll be back

We had the 9 crs degustation with premium matched wines ($150 + $150). Every course was delicious but the desserts were somewhat disappointing after the exceptional quality of previous courses. The matched wines were of excellent quality and as you would expect they were paired beautifully with the food. More generous servings would have been nice. The wines appear to be locked in by the sommeliers and there could be more interaction on possibilities. $10 cc surcharge is curious.

Hi,
I'm just back from a lovely 8 course dinner with my bf. Food was great, service impeccable. However, annoyed when the bill came.....I was wondering if you'd be able to sign post me to where on your website and where on your menus does it state that the $150 for the set menu is exclusive of GST?
Kind regards,
Nicola

Highly recommend Bentley's. The highlight was the option to pair the tasting menu with non-alcoholic beverages. For someone who does not drink I've never come across this in another fine dining restaurant. The paired drinks were very well thought out and complimented the food beautifully. The restaurant were also allergy/food intolerant aware asking upfront about dietary requirements and going out of their way to cater for my special dietary needs. Thanks You for an amazing dining experience

We hadn't been back to the Bentley Bar for a number of years, but booked there to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The 8 course menus with matching wines didn't disappoint, every course is a highlight, unlike many tasting menu's where there is always the odd flat spot.

The service was exceptional with the tone absolutely spot on, friendly, informative and fun.

This is especially try of the wine service, which was one of the highlights of the experience.

We are from Melbourne and have been there before and really enjoyed it, this visit was made special with my wife commenting to the mixologist when we where having drinks at the bar, that at a restaurant in Vegas they ask you if you would like a black napkin if you are wearing a black dress. When we sat down the waiter placed a black napkin on her lap, when we looked around no one else had a black napkin only white, apart from the good service and great food it really made the night.

Terrible good and non existent service. The W.A. Martin prawn consisted of an over grilled single medium.dized prawn for $40?! Non wonder it was a empty on a Friday. Shame on THE "JUDGES" aho gave it 2 chefs hats. We couldn't wait for the meal to be over except the mains took 40 mins to arrive after the starters. And the staff did not know what they were serving. Called the mahi mahi the "sword fish"?

 (Sydney / NSW)·Dined on 27 February 2017

This was my first visit to the new Bentley, though it's been there for 3 years (where did the time go). It was my mother's 90th birthday and absolutely nothing disappointed. The meal starts with the obligatory slice of bread and made in house butter; the tastiest butter I have ever had. Yes, better than Pepe Saya which is no mean feat.
Mum is old fashioned and baulked at the idea of raw kangaroo; expecting slabs of raw meat on a plate. It was served as a pattie mixed with grain and decorated with little flowers. She loved it. Mum had only had duck once before in a restaurant and remembered it as a dry unappetising meat. I reminded her that I had served her duck once and had cooked it according to Brent's cookbook. (Personally I have also been disappointed on more occasions than I care to remember at the over cooked nature of duck I have ordered at various restaurants) Bentley's duck was served in little strips and was beautifully succulent. Mum was impressed.
I have to mention the wine. Whilst there are many bottles that will always remain on my dream lists, lest I somehow find that elusive high paying job, the menu included a reasonable selection of half bottles. This allowed me to start with a half bottle of Champagne and then follow it with a lovely half of Pinot Noir for the duck and my tenderest (yes, not an actual word, but it conveys the sentiment best) ever pork. I let mum return to her unfinished champagne when her fish parcels with shaved pumpkin arrived, while I ordered a single glass of old vine Shiraz to match my grass fed waygu; good to see the move away from grain fed.
The bill for two people with wine and tip came to over $500. It is easy to think of this as expensive and hard to reconcile with my rating this as good value for money. Things are relative and it must be compared with similar. The day before the whole family had gone to Otto at Woolloomooloo. The prices there were very similar but Bentley's food is in a totally different stratosphere.
